It’s the new year and it’s time for everyone’s favorite new year resolution- losing weight.
If you are one of those people who want to lose weight this year, there are 5 things I would like to share with you to help you get a good head start and build momentum to achieve your fitness goals.
We all know that weight loss is one part nutrition and one part training. However, in this post, we’re going to focus on the training part.
You see, how you approach your training is crucial to the results you’ll get. The more consistent you are with your training, the better chances you will lose weight. It can help you avoid injury, too.
Stop doing isolated exercises
The most popular type of training will always be split training. It’s where you only train certain parts of your body, like chest, biceps, triceps, back, and legs.
Instead of committing to that, try to focus on circuit training using compound movements (multiple muscles used at once).
One thing that circuit training with compound movements has done for me is it has transformed my body into a fat-burning furnace even when I’m sleeping or sitting on a sofa.
Who wouldn’t want that?
Circuit training raises your heart rate so much that your body will have a hard time making up for the oxygen deficit. As a result, it will have to compensate by consuming more oxygen after your workout is done. This causes continuous burning of calories or the EPOC effect.
I never really knew what exhausted meant until I started doing circuit training. After each round, I find myself breathless, crunched over, and feeling a little dizzy. That’s a great sign that you had an intense workout.
By the way, if you are working out hard, you won’t be able to do it for long. This is why circuit training only takes about 15 to 25 minutes, including rest periods.
Stop doing the same thing
